No Country For Old Men

Action, Drama, Thriller, Western No Comments »

It is so nice when you go into a movie with no expectations and then love the movie. I went to see No Country for Old Men and spent the next two hours holding my breath. I was so scared of Javier Bardem’s character Anton Chigurh (pictured right). I had never seen a Javier Bardem movie before so I had to look him up just to see that he doesn’t always look that scary. James said afterwards that he had been worried that it would be just another Coen brothers movie with people talking in funny accents. Instead it was a different kind of Coen brothers movie with people talking in funny accents.  We are going to see it again when James is back from traveling.

Tombstone

Action, Drama, Western No Comments »

tombstone.jpgWe will pretty much watch Tombstone any time it is on. Tombstone has some of the greatest dialog in movie history. None of it makes any sense to me, but it sure sounds good. One of the best lines is when Wyatt Earp wants to get a spot in the gambling saloon and says:

                     WYATT

          Go ahead.  Skin it.  Skin that

          Smoke wagon and see what happens.

And of course the best line said by the best character in the entire movie, Doc Holliday.

                     O.S. VOICE
